Water – liquid silver in the Italian Garden.

Water gurgles and rushes down a 'water chain.'

Come and experience water as a dramatic part of Italian Renaissance gardens.

“Water is the commonest symbol for the unconscious.”  C.G. Jung

Water flows, gurgles, pauses, rushes, sprays, leaps, sings, sleeps in the Italian garden.  The gardens we will visit were built on hillsides, using gravity to provide almost unlimited variety of water works.  Often natural springs were the source of the water but, for some of the gardens, one or more rivers were diverted to provide the amazing displays.   We will be experiencing the water in the gardens and using this inspiration to tap into our unconscious in our art meditations.
